DEBATE IS THE DEATH OF CONVERSATION
March 14, 2014 1:16pm CST
I have myself experienced when people are involved in useless gossips, after some time they start fighting. First of all I would like to take the example of political parties at the time of elections. They have nothing to show by deeds in five years, when they take part in a debate on television, they start speaking loudly to show themselves better than other parties. The reality lies in this that there has always been a secret compromise among the parties to create such circumstances that the public should not be able to discriminate between good or bad. The innocent public, in dilemma, can not take right decision. In this way they come to sit on the throne one by one public is befooled only. Argument seldom convinces against his inclination. We should drop the subject of debate when we can not agree. If you know that you are right then there is no need debate. If you know that you are wrong confess it. ONE CAN NOT BE SHORT IN SIZE IF ONE ADMITS ONE'S MISTAKE. BUT PEOPLE KEEP ON JUSTIFYING THEIR TOPIC WHETHER IT IS WRONG OR RIGHT AND WASTE AWAY THEIR VALUABLE TIME IN USELESS DISCUSSIONS.

I think it depends on the individual and the circumstance. Everyone is able to keep discussion going (regardless of how we define the type of discussion) or regress. Perhaps ending discussion is a way of communication with definite results. When it comes to politics perhaps it does become somewhat of a battle, a fight, with intent to win something?

Yes, you are right.Discussion should be healthy. Politics is generally turned in to arena.We can not adopt politics as a profession and remain honest and truthful. Today politics is another name of corruption. Thank you very much for a considerable comment.

@sunilmishra7756 I fear you are right! Politics seems to corrupt everyone that gets close to her. This is shameful when the politics is telling everyone she is all about things like prosperity, freedom, security and peace. Only in good times would it be true? In science, debate takes on a whole new meaning. 1+1=2 . Can you prove it debate? Unlike a debate about relationships where 1+1=1? Some debates do not agree but look at both sides. Can we debate without killing the conversation? That is a question.
